    After seeing CPR and MM speak, I wouldn't read into it too much. They put the OL into some "high pressure situations" on purpose today, so it may not mean much about who scored and who didn't, although it does sound like we need the OL to step up a little more before the game starts by MM's comments. Actually, I am happy to hear that our young Front 7 is holding their own and tackling well.

    Sure sounds like Sam won the job at QB. Not so much that Rohach did anything to lose the job; Richardson just had a hell of a good summer and passed him.

    That sux. The oline may still be the weakest part of the team.

    You've got to be joking, right?

    When Rhoads states that he wants our kickers to be consistent and comfortable from 40 yds and in.... nobody in their right mind that follows football at all would ask that question. Sorry. It's a really stupid question to ask.

    A 40 yd FG is a 40 yd FG. Always has been and always will be. It's NEVER talked about from where the line of scrimmage is at. I don't think Rhoads demands our kickers to be consistent and comfortable from 57 yds and in. C'mon here people. I don't think I'm being overly harsh here. It was just a dumb follow up question by a guy that is well known for dumb questions. Heck, Fred always makes fun of Peterson and his dumb questions.

    For the first offense not to score under any situation is not a good sign for NDSU. It may take awhile to have an offense.

    You've got to understand that reporters aren't supposed to assume anything. Peterson probably knew it was a dumb question, but as a journalist he needed to clarify the comment just in case Rhoads decided at some point that Netten's so good he needs to be perfect from 57 yards in.

    It is hard to tell much unless you know the situations. It sounded like MM ran the 3rd and 4th string RBs most of the time, and ran them into a blitzing defense that knew the play. Maybe they started the offense on the 5 yard line to see if they could drive 95 yards?

    I absolutely am. People get tired of reporters asking what they consider stupid questions, but part of the reporters job is to not print something false. I certainly can see where Peterson was coming from when he asked it.

    Y'all can argue about kickers and reporters all you want. I could not possibly care any less.
    I only care about progress of the fundamentals and I definitely saw some of that today.
    Actually...lots of progress. The most important parts of football are blocking and tackling.
    Both have improved drastically from one year ago today.

    This is good to hear. I am hoping beyond hope that the team can get off to a good start for the season. Just sneak out a win in week one. They didn't give up last year, but it would have been nice to see what could have happened if a game or two had gone their way earlier.

    Re: CFTV: Paul Rhoads 8-16-14 scrimmage recap

    Does anyone have any specifics on what happened in the scrimmage? Who looked good, or no so good? What situations did they set up besides running the ball into defense after tell them the play?
